In this role, you will work in Qualcomm’s RF Front-End (RFFE) Department working on advanced front-end modules for cellular/wireless applications. The position offers the opportunity to design advanced RF Front-End Modules to ensure design success and market leadership. Qualcomm solutions include highly customized LNAs, PAs, FEMs, antenna tuner and multi-throw switches in standalone and module packages for 4G and 5G wireless cell phone and ultra-mobile devices. The RF SiP Design Engineer will deliver Front-End Module designs in a fast-paced team environment, and is required to work closely with RFIC design engineers to optimize a design by extensive co-simulation and co-design based on RF system knowledge.
The responsibilities will include but not be limited to the following:
+ Multilayer laminate design and layout and simulation
+ IC integration into multilayer laminates
+ Solve complex RF technical issues with techniques developed in Qualcomm
+ Participating and conducting design reviews
+ Performing lab correlation with Module E2E (End to End) simulation
All Qualcomm employees are expected to actively support diversity on their teams, and in the Company.
+ Bachelor’s degree in Science, Engineering, or related field.
+ 2+ years ASIC design, verification, or related work experience.
+ Measurement of microwave active and passive devices
+ Usage of test equipment such as VNA/PNA/PXA and high-speed oscilloscope, micro-probes and different calibration methods
+ RFIC packaging and module design techniques such as PoP, QFN, BGA, LGA, CSP and WLP.
+ Usage of quasi-static and full wave EM field solvers (such as Q3D, HFSS,) and circuit simulator like ADS, Virtuoso and plus sufficient programing skill with Matlab
+ Power amplifier, tuner, LNA, filters and switch knowledge is a plus.
+ Innovative problem solver, passion to win/contribute, ability to work in, and thrive in, a team environment.
+ Solid understanding of RF fundamentals such as Smith chart and impedance matching.
